THE MOST CLASSIC moment from the opening of the 30th Olympiad, London’s third hosting duty, a singular honor.
It was a glorious opening, one that exceeded the last in China. Slow start, but the music and the evolution of Great Britain was something to which I related. But, oh, those fireworks! Then there was Paul McCartney getting choked up as he led the finale. Marvelous night.
Many people cannot appreciate what it takes to direct volunteers in such a massive theatrical stadium event, which also represents your country.
But now it’s about the athletes.
